Many an economist says that Canada is not really feeling the effects of a recession... yet. And is certainly not part of the downturn that is leaving the U.S.A. in a tizzy. (This theory conveniently excludes the auto manufacturing sector, in addition to industry in a broad sense.)
Why do I agree with some of these economists? Because my work is as busy as ever (it's nuts!), and I am having a hard time finding vacant office space needed for a project I am planning to undertake. Also, I walk down the street and all I see are "Help Wanted" signs.
Hardly a scientific observation, but one for the record from my perspective, nonetheless.
